I'm not a laundry hater. Ok, putting it away is my down-fall but I actually love the sorting, washing and drying.
I read about this mom who stopped folding her cloth diapers and would just throw the clean ones into a basket - and I tried it and loved it. We have since stopped cloth diapering, but the idea of simplifying housework and figuring out necessary vs fluff (can housework be fluff? i'm thinking "yes") tasks has been worth reflection.
I realized that folding bath towels, however wonderfully warm and neat and nice they may be for a whole 1.7 seconds before toddlers descend upon them is a total, utter, waste of time at this point in life.

Baskets one, two AND three on the right is how much laundry I would have if I kept the bath towels in to be folded.
So, one basket of folding or three....
dooo do dooo do...
One basket, please!
And so all the bath towels are emptied into this large (FREE!) wicker basket some friends of ours demoted from their home. Happy to have it put to use here!
Viola! Less mess, less stress!
